Former Strangler Hugh Cornwell to Release Ltd Edition Album
To coincide with Hugh Cornwell's upcoming nationwide Spring 2011 UK Tour, the former Stranglers front man and singer/songwriter, has announced an "exclusive" limited edition 10-track album entitled "You're Covered!" The album is strictly limited to 250 copies and will be available to VIP ticket holders only!
All VIP tickets are available from www.seetickets.com, or fans can hit the Red Button on Cornwell's official website www.hughcornwell.com, where they can also hear two exclusive streamed audio tracks from the limited edition CD.
"Over the years I've heard certain songs which have stayed with me and will suddenly pop up into my head for no apparent reason," says Hugh about 'You're Covered!'. "They range from 'things' that I heard as a kid, to 'calling your name', which I only heard a few years ago for the very first time. This selection is by no means comprehensive, but is a cross-section of influences."
